Day one with Habitat for Humanity in New Orleans

We got up early in the morning and took a cab over to the Musicians' Village site. The project managers gave a safety talk and then tried to figure out which way to send us. There were several hundred volunteers and it was turning into the hottest day of the year so far (they told us) and they had an event planned for later in the day so I'm not sure they were as coordinated as usual.

Truth is, there was plenty of work to do in both directions!

Some sites are just getting foundations:

Other houses are almost done:

We spent most of the day moving supplies from around the homes near completion to the site just breaking ground.

In the afternoon, the first wall was raised on the 41st home in the project!
